On Saturday evening former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin spoke to the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, TN. She spoke the supportive crowd for about 45 minutes and then proceeded to take questions for 15 minutes from a moderator.
In her speech Palin railed against President Obama’s constant use of a teleprompter among other things. After the speech a photo of Palin showed that on her left palm she had written topics to remember to cover in the speech and during the question and answer session.
Palin’s left palm illustrates the many problems that she has in becoming someone who the American people can call their leader, or as some wish the President. In throwing a stone at Obama it’s clear that she was in a glass house as she relied on her palm rather than a teleprompter to answer questions.
Moreover, this shows that Palin still has trouble with the big issues and that she has no strong foundational beliefs. Anyone who seeks to speak out on any issue should be able to to talk about them with confidence. Having a check list of things to remember makes Palin look like she belongs in the minor leagues.
It’s apparent that if she wants to stay in the big leagues of politics that she must better command the issues and be able to do so without writing on her hand like a student in elementary school.
